Meet Tonda


I'm Tonda Thomas, the Principal and Lead Consultant of Laya Events. The one thing I absolutely love the most about what I do, is seeing my clients faces when they walk into a room knowing that their vision came to life. Seeing their joy, makes everything so worthwhile. 


I've had a passion for helping others for as long as I can remember and my journey began when I finally decided to take a leap of faith towards the pursuit of what really sets my soul on fire, planning events!  I just wanted to create something that would make a significant difference in the way people do Organizational Events, I think I've accomplished that.


Special Events are very personal. My relationship with you is built on a foundation of trust and framed with treasuring your event experience as if it's my own. I’ve worked on some of the biggest corporate functions and I’ve planned special birthday parties for fewer than 10 guests, delivering an unforgettable evening for each person. My goal is to always deliver a WOW factor and create a wonderful Laya Experience that your guests will be talking about at your event for a lifetime! 

Thank you for considering Laya Events and I hope that we can become a part of your special event team. Contact us to begin your Laya Experience.

Happy Planning!
